NEW HOME CONSTRUCTION PROCESS
(NEW HOME CONSTRUCTION PROCESS) Buying a new home made to order can be a daunting task if you let it be so. This can also be a rewarding and exciting process as you will have many decisions to make.
At Tanen Homes, we believe that home buyers should be made aware of the building process and what is involved before spending any money on the project. If a home buyer is not in a position of unlimited cash which most home buyers are not, finding a lender and qualifying for a construction loan that modifies to a mortgage (construction perm loan) should be the first step made before visiting and interviewing home builders. Being qualified will let you know what you can afford to build and lets a prospective builder will know what to show you based on your financial qualification.
The next step is to decide where you want to live. Tract building is easy as PUD’s (Planned Urban Developments) are located in many areas but tract building has many limitations. They have set models and generally tract builders do not alter their plans or offer many selections other than the standard items that are included. This is easier than custom building as tract builders offer the lot and house together and there are not many options to choose from.
If you choose a custom builder such as Tanen Homes, you will need to purchase your own lot and then build your dream home. We have professional real estate agents that can locate buildable lots or many times home buyers own a lot and are looking to build. As opposed to tract builders, we at Tanen Homes work with our home buyers and design their home the way they want it to be. Home buyers will pick everything for example, cabinets, doors, paint colors, roofing, wall outlets, lighting and many other items before we break ground on the project.
If you want it your way and want some control on how your home gets built, custom as opposed to tract building is the way to go.
